Autumn Warmth

Even with Thanksgiving right around the corner, I hadn't spent much time decorating the house for Autumn.  I had gathered my little pile of pumpkins and gourds and tossed them in a vintage tool chest on the buffet in the dining room.  They were starting to look a little tired, or I was getting a little tired of the look, so when Stacey contacted me to participate in a Thanksgiving vignette party it was just the kick in the pants that I needed to get off my duff and start digging for a fresher look.
 I headed for the dungeon basement and started digging.  I had actually forgotten about the brown transferware tureen I had, and that candle left over from last years Christmas clearance sales.  I had a bit of last years foraged bittersweet tucked away too, along with an old frame and some faux ivy in my craft stash.
I brought my Boston ferns inside last night, (good thing because it was 23 degrees outside last night!) and tucked a few sprigs in a clear glass vase along with the bittersweet.  Those are not two things I would normally put together but they seem to be working.  I like the green, brown and orange color scheme. The green brings a little bit of freshness inside :)
Bright and beautiful, thanks Stacey!

  12. It was cold last night...24° here. I was glad that I brought in the mums and pumpkins. How pretty the pumpkins look in that brown transferware. Where I want to create a similar look is too close to the heat so the pumpkins just don't hold up. Speaking of which, the squirrels kidnapped all the pumpkins I had on my gardening bench. I was not at all happy with them.

  13. Beautiful! I love the way you've put it all together - and you inspired me to dig in my 'dungeon' (the garage) and get some Thanksgiving decorating done on a bit of a gray day in Oregon. Now, if I could only find some bittersweet!

  14. What a gorgeous soup tureen! I spent all day straightening/cleaning up our dungeon. I gathered four large boxes to bring to a thrift store. And guess what, I did't find a soup tureen anywhere near as pretty as yours!
